Feature selection is a key challenge before the process of classification could be performed. The classification accuracy would increase by using a good feature selection method and also at the same time reduces the cost and time involved in the computation. In this study, we applied hybrid methods by using Correlation Based Feature Selection combined with different search algorithms. The classification performance was evaluated using fuzzy rough neural network classifier on the selected gene subsets. The experimental results reveal that majority of the hybrid method selects very few gene subsets and produces much better classification accuracy. The results are validated using traditional approaches like Precision, Recall, F-Score and Region of Characteristic.
